This is an interesting idea, slightly disturbing, but nevertheless interesting. I enjoy the idea of cute little teddy bears ramming themselves repeatedly against someone. The writing is clear and easy to read, and there were no spelling or grammar problems that I could see. congrats, Grey. Go to Comment
Generally, they attack en mass in very dark conditions. It takes the combined "might" of all of them to knock someone out for about ten minutes, so they really don't have much force. The idea is that they hide in the shadows... and learn... Go to Comment
The lycanthropic carnival: A decent, well written submission. This could be a neat background addition to any high fantasy campaign. As it stands it is okay, but there is nothing terribly exciting about it. Personally I love twists, details and stories within stories. Right now you have a quality one dimensional story.

I tend to agree with AG's comment, but I do understand your reply as well, Grey. As a backdrop it works just fine. I get it, You're painting with broad strokes here (like in the teddy bear piece as well), providing expanded idea seeds, for a GM to build upon. Good. Go to Comment
I like the idea, and the background is decent. Something I would suggest would be to give some descriptions for specific locations within the carnival. Do they have a special tent just for "weathering out" their transformations? Also, what happens usually during the full moon, do they just sit around and mope,or do the villagers find oddly killed deer in the woods the next morning? Go to Comment
Dustwood is technically not a wood from a specific tree. It is an created fuel for fires.
Starting with the sawdust from a sawmill, adding a mixture of wax or pitch, and a few other things, the mixture is pounded or pressed toghether tightly. It is normally smashed into a round container, so when it is slipped out, it looks like a small perfectly round "log". (actually a lathed log, but you get the idea). It can either be used as a log or slices of a log can be used for a fire.
